    That was poor attendance at the stadium. So its true that people shun Sata’s forced appearance at Mwanawasa stadium? The funeral would have been much better without Sata, people don’t want to go to a funeral to be shouted at by a president.
    Pic #1, all PF so excited, laughing as they await their king.

    Naustraus whatever your name is. Tame your evil tongue, a funeral is no time for silly jokes. Keep your stinking mouth shut when you have nothing to say on a particular incident , than annoying those of us who have lost relatives to this tragedy. Your days are numbered, this is no time to show your poor understanding of politics. There are better things you can do in life. Leave politics to those who understand them. You are wiser than the people who died in that accident. Stop exposing your mediocre knowledge on things you least understand. There is alot of wisdom in keeping quiet than making unnecessarly noise like a Congolese baboon in the jungle. Your hatred for President Sata ,who was elected by the majority Zambians will send you to your early death. You link everything to Sata, why?

    Your captioning skills are very poor

    pictures number five and six . lories are clearly marked police not zambia army.

    Where did your photographer get the Zambia Army from?

    You need to Invest in a picture editor Or just proof read before going to bed .

    By the way in case you’re wondering by going to bed I mean before publishing that is the language used in jounalism. Good luck
